BAGHDAD, Iraq – American reporter Jill Carroll was set free Thursday, nearly three months after she was kidnapped in a bloody ambush that killed her translator. She said she had been treated well. Carroll, 28, was dropped off near the Iraqi Islamic Party offices. She walked inside, and people there called American officials, Iraqi police said. "I was treated well, but I don’t know why I was kidnapped," Carroll said in a brief interview on Baghdad television.
ALL of Michigan has been praying that this brave
woman would be released unharmed. She hails from Ann Arbor, which is not very far from
my home. This is great news for her family who has tirelessly campaigned for her release.
WELCOME BACK JILL!!!!
She has it down to a science though..not so much clutter in her life makes it easy to just up and move when the need rises for it. I guess if I had to pack it all up I could make an
easy way for myself to do it too.
Her job being so crazy now has necessitated her to move to yet another city. This time she pays less rent and is closer to her family and to ME!! That’s important! I welcomed the move for monetary reasons too. I mean why pay more when you can get a good deal?
I told her…. YOU are not moving again….stay put for awhile! I hope she does this time.
Her boss promised her a management position and when she got all moved he gave it to someone else.! A person from the outside with little or no management experience. My friend had been working for the company for over 20 years..HOW RUDE!
I was shocked and so were a lot of others. Here she had moved to be closer to the main headquarters and then he re-negged on the deal.What kind of Boss does that? Well then the thing is to stay or to leave?
She opted to stay on for awhile and it has been all but misery there. Now someone else is retiring at another branch and they will be leaving in May and so she has the opportunity to be manager there. So again she moves….but this time..the owner announced that she would be taking the position to the whole staff. I feel much better about it this time. Try living holding your breath for the next big disaster. It is like a roller coaster, ups and downs.
Rumor has it the whole business could be sold and then what?? I hate the thought of that happening. It could go under or all new management come in. I guess that’s life though you take what comes or move on. It isn’t easy moving on after working for a place for that long. You hate to have to change and kind of start over again, especially if you are over 50. I wish her good luck this time and I hope it all works out okay. There are lots of opportunities in this world I guess you just have to keep looking for them.
Giving my temperament I could only take so much and I would be outta there!!! I hate to MOVE!!!
Have a great Monday.. it will be nice this week I am sure looking
forward to it….
